A gentleman who gave the tour, whose name escapes me, was incredibly knowledgeable about the site and patiently took photos of me for me upon request. An underrated nugget of a Delaware tourist attraction.

On this site can be seen the main John Dickinson house as well as other buildings where slaves lived. You leave here with a wealth of knowledge about early Delaware history and the wider history during the formative years of the country. The tour guides are very knowledgeable. Plan to spend 2 hours here.

Lovely and well preserved plantation house turned into a museum. The volunteers tell loads of stories and are the real asset of this place.

This is a must-see if in Dover. You are greeted by staff wearing period pieces then shown an informative video before walking over to the mansion. The tour guide is waiting to greet you by the home. Each room had its purpose and our guide was a wealth of information. We made sure to give a donation to help preserve this treasure.

Okay visit. The plantation was beautiful and well maintained. The tour was not that great.
